Toddler Bentley Toone loves to play with his mother’s iPhone especially the FaceTime app. He is known for making prank calls, but his knowledge and familiarity of the app hailed him as a hero as he helped his mother after a dog attacked her.
People reports that the 2-year-old's mother, Laura Toone, had taken a walk when the foster dog she was taking care of attacked one of her dogs. Toone tried to break up the fight between the dogs but the dog almost bit one of her fingers off.
ABC News reports that Toone suffered from some sever injuries. Her daughters were too afraid and in shock with the incident that they couldn’t call 911.
She said, “I begged my daughters to call 911 and they're four and they were quite afraid to even touch the phone because it was covered in my own blood."
Due to her injuries and loss of blood, Toone started to feel light-headed and dizzy. Bentley stepped into the nurturing role and tended to his mother.
"Here comes my son from the kitchen bringing me our dish towel," Toone said. "He wiped off the blood himself and proceeded to call my friend on FaceTime.”
Bentley used his mother’s phone and made a FaceTime call to Toone’s friend Connie Guerrero. When Guerrero realized the urgency of the situation, she called 911. Toone has now shown all her children how to dial 911.
